Er villa í línu 5 ? Eiga ekki að vera 6 lykkjur í A1 eins og á myndinni??? Það passar við lykkjufjöldann.

Bonjour , Je suis entrien de réaliser votre boule avec des torses . Mais il y a une erreur avec le diagrame. Avez vous la solution ?

DROPS Design 28.11.2016 kl. 10:07:

Bonjour Mme Coss, nous ne voyons pas d'erreur dans le diagramme A.1. Le diagramme se tricote sur 6 m (avec entre chaque A.1 un nombre de mailles env qui va augmenter/diminuer) - on croise les mailles au 1er rang et on répète les 6 rangs du diagramme en hauteur. Bon tricot!

Casse-bonbec 29.11.2015 - 07:56:

Bonjour à toute l'équipe, je pense qu'il y a une erreur dans les explications de la bouleà torsades "let it snow", Modèle n° li-047 : à partir du rang 5, jusqu'au rang 22, il est écrit de faire les m croisées vers la gauche, pour la torsade, à chaque rang. Or sur la photo, il y a seulement 2 croisements visibles. Je vais donc modifier le nombre de croisements. Merci pour tous ces beaux modèles, en tout cas.

DROPS Design 30.11.2015 kl. 11:13:

Bonjour Casse-Bonbec, quand il est indiqué de tricoter "A.1", tricotez le rang du diagramme approprié = la torsade va se répéter tous les 5 rangs. Bon tricot!

Lavorando con i ferri nr. 4 ho realizzato 4 palline finendo il filato Lima e avanzando circa un quarto di gomitolo Kid-Silk. Buon divertimento!

Silvia Cucinotta 06.11.2014 - 19:07:

Quante palline di natale si ottengono da un gomitolo? grazie

Buongiorno Silvia, abbiamo inoltrato la sua richiesta alla casa madre. Le risponderemo quanto prima. Buon lavoro!
